    Thank you for responding, Yes, vibration is all around. I just got front rotors replaced about month ago. I got all 4 new tires to see if that would do it. I still have the vibration, it is around 2100RPM. Spark plugs? I will try your suggestions and will get back to you... thank you

Is the vibration all around the car ......or steering wheel.....or any other particular part?......If it is all around then I am more inclined to believe that it has something to do with spark plugs and or wires....check them out and replace as needed...Another thing that it could be is your air filter may need to be cleaned or replaced. It could also be that you have warped rotors....they will cause vibration while driving ....but problem is most apparent when braking.

    hopefully you get this before you change the plugs ....but I would get the car aligned first and while you are doing that you might want to have someone check and see that the tires are balanced properly. friend has also just informed me that it could be your cv joints as well....but I would definately get the alignment first.

I have a vibration at 70 miles per hour

if the wheel alignment is faulty ( castor wobble ) at 70 mph there is no way that you can describe it as a vibration as it virtually rip the steering wheel out of your hands. If it is a torque converter problem then at around 3850-4025 rpm stationary there will be a vibration of the vehicle and engine The sort of vibration that you are experiencing at 70 mph will come from a drive line problem. If rear wheel drive then it could be faulty "U" joints, worn slip joint or failed rear engine mount
If front wheel drive it may be cv joints or bent drive shafts,wheel bearings or brake callipers not moving freely on the mounting bolts.

When excelerate to 70 mph my steering wheel vibrates. What should I do?

This is very common. It can either be your tires need to be balanced. Or your car needs to be aligned at an alignment center. One or the other should stop the vibration.

Lift the back of your car.With a stable rest and with the two hind wheels hanging, run your car up to the speed where you experienced vibration. have someone take care of the throttle and shifting while you observe the transmission shaft. You may have an imbalanced shaft.

Vibration from 45-60 michlin tires ,aligned and balanced

have the steering rack checked for excess play, also have all the front end bushing checked, this is a common cause of this type of problem, it is the front end that is doing it, finding the worn part(s) is the job that needs to be done to correct this.
